Open Educational Resources

Open educational resources (OER) can be used in place of traditional teaching materials. OER include syllabi, course modules, textbooks, videos, tests, assessment tools, and any other materials used to support learning. OER originate from colleges, universities, libraries, government agencies, publishers, or faculty or other individuals who develop and openly share their teaching resources.

Learn more about OER and how to find and use them in your teaching.
